Games keep coming my way

Even though I don’t have any money to buy games, I keep getting them by other means. Looks like I’ll get a copy of Alan Moon’s Ticket to Ride to translate. That’ll be interesting, because I’m intrigued about the game. It’s the comments that say "this is what TransAmerica should’ve been" — I was badly disappointed by TransAmerica.

Now if I can only figure out a way to get Memoir ’44, the single coolest new game this year for free…

Oh, and one more thing: today, I’ll be mailing the bill for my translation of Settlers of Catan. For the first time in my life, someone is actually going to pay me proper money for doing something related to board games!

  1. I picked up a copy of Ticket to Ride from Safe Haven at the nice relatively low price of 39 euros.
    It was a fun, quick, tense, and addictive little game. The kinda game that makes you wanna play it again immediately after finishing.
    But I didn’t like TransAmerica either, and train theme is a bit old and boring. And I wonder about these “destination” cards — if you can’t connect some 20+ point route….you’re screwed.
    So it’s good, but not great…I say that about just of all of Alan Moon’s games.
